Yanmar Engine not starting
My 1997 38 hp yanmar engine is not starting. When the key is turned, the oil contact notification goes off, but then nothing happens when the key is turned to start the motor.
I can hear the click of the solenoid when I opened the engine compartment, but the starter does not engage. I just replaced my starting battery with a group 29 AGM battery. So there is plenty of juice...
Is my starter fried? Do starters fail "just like that"? The engine started when when we went to go sailing - 4 hours later....no engine.
Anybody else experience this type of behavior?
